Hari Raya is for ALL muslims

Hari Raya is EID EL FITRI which celebrates the end of the fasting month, Ramadan. In Malaysia, Indonesia, Brunei, etc, they say Selamate Hari Raya which means Happy EID EL FITRI..

NB: i am not Asian...but have good friends from Malaysia whom i knew during my graduate schooling..

Yeah I've noticed that the Bruneian press uses the words "Hari Raya" and "Aidilfitri" interchangeably.
Here are the rest of the pics from November 14

1. Princess Rashidah
2. Princess Majeedah & Hafizah

The women of the royal family wear beautiful pins and brooches to keep their scarves in place. One is worn under the chin, and another at the bottom end of the hijab, under that, is usually a long necklace. I used to think they were all one big piece but if you look closely, it isnt.

Zina I have a question, I know the names of three of the sultan's daughters from his first wife, Princesses Rashidah, Majeedah, and Hafizah. What's the name of the fourth daughter? I only saw her at the crown prince's wedding, does she not carry out official duties like her other sisters? I also didnt see her in the Eid pictures.

Sultan's Daughter's Name

The other daughter is HRH Princess Mutawakillah Hayatul Bolkiah. She would normally be at the Palace during Hari Raya, with her sisters. She probably had her own reasons for not attending. Even Pg Anak Isteri Pg Anak Sarah did not attend the morning raya greeting session, yesterday. She did attend in the afternoon however.

Yes they were, and the necklaces were truly works of art. Thanks to whoever it was for the close ups in the Royal Jewels forum!

And I agree, Princess Sarah looks wonderful in red...

So does anybody know if she's continuing with her education?

thanx Zina.
There's another thing I'd like to know. Is Princess Rashidah the only married daughter of the Sultan? Are any of them engaged? Is there any talk in Brunei of who they might end up getting married to?

So far, Princess Rashidah is the only married daughter of the Sultan. But there are rumours that Princess Majeedah is to marry soon. No idea who with, or if there is any truth in the rumours. If she does marry, it is likely to be an arranged marriage with one of her distant cousins. Unlike the Sultan's sons, the Sultan's daughters must marry nobility or blue bloods.

oh really? I would've thought that its the sons who'd have to marry into the nobility since they're the ones first in line to the throne.
As for the sultan's kids from his second wife, would they have to marry with the consent of their father? eventhough their parents are divorced and they seem to spend most of their time in England? I've heard that the royal family doesn't even like the name of the former princess Mariam to be mentioned. If her kids marry in Brunei, as they're likely to, I wonder if she'd be allowed to attend the weddings.

Read in another thread and some papers that Crown Prince Muhtadee has a long time girlfriend before he married Sarah. Why didn't he marry his ex?

According to Malaysian newpapers, the CP parents thought his ex-girlfriend was "too common". I've never seen pictures of this ex-girlfriend; she left Brunei "in a huff" after CP's engagement to Sarah Salleh was announced. CP wanted a bride of mixed heritage. P. Sarah is half-Swiss; and she is also a distant cousin, her father being a member of Brunei's aristocracy, and a descendent of a previous Sultan.
